BROWSE TOURS       HOW IT WORKS       OUR STORY

Warriors. How long is this wall? Music. Tea. Tao. Noodles. Bicycles. Year of the Rooster. Buddhist monks. The Forbidden City. A dragon! Tai chi. Families. Cacophony of sounds. Temples. Mountains. Red and gold. So that’s how rice is grown.  


This is China.

This is China.

Anyone can go to China. You’re going to experience it.


Welcome to the world’s oldest continuous civilization. The People’s Republic of China is a study in contrasts, with ultramodern cities abutting ancient marvels, and a diverse population as dedicated to its traditions as it is to its future. See natural formations as exotic as the culture—dramatic mountain peaks and cliffs highlighted by the enchanting Moon Hill. Walk in the footsteps of emperors in the Forbidden City, then trek the Great Wall and wonder at its age and scale. And all the while, you’ll marvel at how far from home you are, yet how at home you feel.

The food

Sample mouth-watering staples like congee or jiaoza. And enjoy a feast of authentic Peking duck the way it was meant to be eaten, with the skin served dipped in sugar and garlic sauce, and the meat wrapped within a tender pancake dotted with a sweet bean sauce and scallions.


The people

China’s vast population might make the country seem impersonal, but its 1.3 billion residents are determined to make visitors feel welcome. Come upon someone practicing tai chi and you’re likely to be drawn into an impromptu lesson.


The culture

You’ll hear upwards of seven different dialects during your visit to China, spoken by an industrious people that is equally focused on celebrating the artistic elements of their culture as they are on preserving their spiritual and mystical history.

“This tour was the highlight of my senior year! Going to see the Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, the local language school, the Jade Buddha Temple, etc. made me so much more aware of the world around me, and the difference between the cultures.”
